Now PropertyShark has released their Residential Foreclosure Report for Q1 2018, and those trends toward higher foreclosure rates seem to be continuing in the new year.PropertyShark’s foreclosure report for last year revealed that the number of foreclosed New York homes hit an eight-year high in 2017. During Q1 2018, the number of new foreclosure cases climbed 31 percent year-over-year. PropertyShark reports a total of 920 new foreclosures logged in NYC during Q1, up from 702 during Q1 2017. New York recorded a higher number of foreclosed homes during Q1 than during any quarter since 2009.Breaking things down by borough, Brooklyn saw the highest increase of homes scheduled for auction in Q1, recording a 64 percent year-over-year increase. That works out to 275 homes scheduled for auction during the quarter, compared to 168 during Q1 2017—the highest number ever recorded in the borough. During Q1 2016, the number was only 79.The Bronx saw a 33 percent year-over-year increase, amounting to 117 homes headed for auction during the quarter.

However, like much of the rest of the city, Staten Island did record a whopping year-over-year increase of 226 percent.For Manhattan and Queens, the news was less dramatic.

Eboo Patel, founder of Interfaith Youth Core, discussed the importance and implications of interfaith narrative and dialogue in a lecture titled “Interfaith Leadership: Engaging Religious and Non-Religious Diversity in the 21st Century.” The lecture was sponsored by Notre Dame’s Multicultural Student Programs and Services.Patel, who also serves as an member of the Inaugural Advisory Council for the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships, said the need for coexistence and cooperation among various religions would become a defining question of our time.“The question of how people orient around religion differently, or interact with one another, whether that be based on conflict or cooperation, will be one of the most engaging questions of the 21st century,” he said.Patel said becoming an interfaith leader is a process that involves viewing one’s identity as a person of faith as an opportunity to create relationships among multiple communities of faith, which helps establish cooperation and dialogue.“You could look to make [your faith identity] a barrier of division, you could look to make it a bludgeon of domination or you could look to make it a bridge of cooperation,” Patel said.Patel said civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., a Baptist, was an example of a successful interfaith leader because he took inspiration from the peaceful protests of Mahatma Gandhi, a Hindu, and cooperated with prominent leaders of multiple religions.“Martin Luther King is many, many things, but amongst them, he is certainly an interfaith leader,” Patel said.Patel said interfaith leadership is developed through three key experiences or “moments.” He said these moments include being inspired by a person or ideal of another faith, engaging and cooperating with people of multiple religions and observing and collaborating in solutions to combat interfaith violence.“You being inspired by an ideal or a person from a different religion; you recognizing and lifting up your memories of partnering with people of different religions whose endeavors are beautiful and great and holy; you recognizing the scourge of religious violence and thinking to yourself, ‘there has to be something done about this and I will take some responsibility’ — these are the kinds of moments that help you craft your own story of interfaith leadership,” Patel said.Patel said interfaith dialogue requires youth leaders who create inspiring and innovative discussion on faith. He focused on the concept of storytelling in the process of developing as an interfaith leader and said interfaith leaders “tell new stories to the world and embody those stories in their lives.”He said storytelling involves creating narratives and environments that are defined by similarities among, rather than by division of, people of different faiths.“Part of what leaders do is shape environments that make salient the commonalities between people from different religions,” Patel said.Tags: Eboo Patel, Gandhi, interfaith, interfaith dialogue, Martin Luther Kind, Multicultural Student Programs and Services
By Technical Sergeant Angela Ruiz, U.S. Air Forces Southern/12th Air Force December 04, 2020 Two U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress aircraft participated in Brother’s Shield, a Colombian Air Force-led exercise, and in UNITAS LXI, an Ecuadorean Navy-led exercise in U.S. Southern Command’s Area of Responsibility, November 8, 2020.This twofold mission began well before the B-52 crews took off that morning; there have been countless teleconferences and planning meetings to coordinate the combined training exercises between the U.S. Air Force and our partner nations’ militaries.Brother’s Shield was the first mission to be completed, celebrating the Colombian Air Force’s 101st anniversary. The B-52H crews supported the Colombian Air Force Kfir fighter aircraft pilots in air-to-air interception training while developing interoperability capabilities in order to increase hemispheric security and regional stability, under NATO standards between the U.S. and Colombia.U.S. Air Force Major Angel Serna, Air Forces Southern/12th Air Force Colombia desk officer, explained that the name of the exercise, Brother’s Shield, developed from the close relationship between the U.S. Air Force and the Colombian Air Force. During this training mission, the Colombian Kfirs flew in formation with the U.S. Air Force B-52Hs in order to shield them from enemy combatants.“Anytime we have the privilege to integrate with our allies in a fighter integration or naval exercise we are excited,” said U.S. Air Force Captain Joshua Henry, 96th Bomb Squadron B-52H pilot and mission lead. “We identified a lot of similarities in the way that the Colombians conduct their intercept training and working with the UNITAS exercise proved to be very beneficial as well. Further developing our tactics, techniques, and procedures with the navy is always beneficial for us as an air player since this is not something we have the opportunity to train on a consistent basis with real time naval assets.”UNITAS is an annual naval exercise conducted in the Atlantic and Pacific waters around Central and South America. The Ecuadorean Navy hosted this year’s exercise, November 2-11, with participants from 11 countries. The B-52 crews integrated and trained with joint forces for UNITAS to include the Ecuadorean Navy to provide a simulated dynamic targeting capability for naval forces.“I haven’t worked with the Colombian or Ecuadorean militaries before, but anytime that we as a community have an opportunity to work with partner nations we always learn a lot,” Capt. Henry said. “Colombia and Ecuador were very professional and a lot of our lessons learned were developed from the planning stages.”

Dimestore Fishermen is an outdoor fishing TV show that focuses on more than just fishing.Show creator Jim Hoey brought his team to the Heritage City on the invitation of Kerry Reed of Reel Adventures Fishing Charters to bring to the rest of North America what Nelsonites have known for years.”We try to focus on the cultural, historical and recreational aspects of communities we visit as much as the actual fishing,” Hoey, in his 12th season as host of Dimestore Fisherman, said during an interview with The Nelson Daily in the fall.“So moving around Nelson, all of Nelson’s natural character came out. We had the opportunity to have a special guest on the water … Mayor John Dooley is a great ambassador of this community.” And several Nelsonites stepped up and gave the crew the character and the natural beauty of the city from people who have lived here their whole lives, added Hoey, the father of three wonderful children. The crew fished on Kootenay Lake for four days in late October, obtaining more than enough footage of the best of what Kootenay Lake has to offer in the way of great fish. All fish caught were released.“(Jim Hoey and) the crew were very impressed with what they saw and they were definitely treated to an amazing experience,” said Reed, who began courting Hoey in March. “I think we highlighted our community in a very positive way and it will reflect in the final product of the TV episode.” Nelson will be showcased once again on television, this time as part of the Dimestore Fishermen series appearing on the World Fishing Network (WFN) Friday.The episode shot on Kootenay Lake in the fall of 2011 is on Channel 152 on Shaw TV. Airtimes are Friday at 2 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Saturday 6 a.m. All ties PDT.
